"A Spectacular American Artist..." - Craig Ferguson, "The Late Late Show with Craig Ferguson", CBS
Hailing from the woods of Georgia, Ben Dukes brings a crowd-pleasing high-energy show to every venue he plays.
Growing up, Dukes was surrounded by twang - whether it was George Jones floating back from the dashboard of his mother's Oldsmobile, or Hank Williams Junior blasting from a fire-side boombox. When he attended his first country concert, Garth Brooks, he was hooked on the raw power of the live show.
"At the end of the day, if the crowd isn't entertained – if they aren't moved, then what are we doing?"
Now based in Los Angeles, and leading a band of seasoned professionals, Dukes attacks his own performances with the same energy he found that night in Atlanta. The Band includes members who have played with Los Angeles club veterans Neil Morrow, Christian Simmons, Paul Justin and Rick Monroe among others. The high-octane six-piece brings something different to the Los Angeles Country Scene. With both male (Dukes) and female (power-vocalist Stacey Brandt) sharing leads, The Band offers every brand of today's top 40 hits, played like a radio live on stage. Lady Antebellum, Thompson Square, Jason Aldean, Carrie Underwood, Blake Shelton - all are artists in the reportoirre.
Ben Dukes is available for bar gigs and private engagements. Book today for a country experience unlike any other in Los Angeles.
